>From a **Forms user's point of view there are following points

   - the syntax how to describe the form  
     --> different
   - validation rules (schematron)
     --> should be the same
   - the controller
     --> the BIG difference

All other things shouldn't be of much interest for them. So I'm fine
with making
the XMLForms block a "deprecated" block and create a new one without the
XMLFormsTransformer but the JXFormsGenerator/Transformer instead. The
question is the different syntax which will cause problems if you want
to migrate.

Which implementation uses the "standard" described by the W3C?

The second difference is the controller. I should be possible to use the
Actions framework to control the forms, shouldn't it? I only had a brief
look into the sources ...

What do you think?
